What is the PNA?
As from 1st April 2013 every Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) in England has a statutory
responsibility to publish and keep up to date a statement of the need for pharmaceutical
services in its area otherwise referred to as a pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA).
The PNA is a key document that will be utilised in the development and improvement of
pharmaceutical services in East Sussex. National Health Service (NHS) England who are
responsible for commissioning pharmaceutical services are also expected to make reference
to the PNA when making decisions about market entry for new service providers as well as
in commissioning advanced and enhanced services.
